Alfresco menu

Aussies love an open-air celebration and this one is a beauty: seafood, fresh sides and a flavour-packed ice cream pudding. 

1. Smoked salmon croutons

Kick off your outdoor feast with crunchy croutons topped with velvety salmon. If you’re looking for an alternative to salmon, top the croutons with triple-smoked leg ham or cooked chicken breast.

2. Parmesan and blue cheese polenta chips

Set up a tempting stack of two-cheese polenta chips, finished with herb salt. You can make the polenta mixture up to 2 days ahead and store it in an airtight container in the fridge for a fuss-free Christmas morning.

3. Fetta, watermelon and cucumber salad

This fresh-tasting salad is vibrant and delicious. It’s the perfect side for Christmas lunch. 

4. Spiced chickpea tabouli

For a Middle Eastern inspired side, this spiced chickpea tabouli is packed with incredible flavours. It’s a great addition to your Christmas spread.

5. Lobster tails and salmon with horseradish butter

Impress guests with this stunning seafood dish. We’ve got lobster and salmon paired with a mouth-watering horseradish butter. 

6. Raspberry nougat ice cream bombe

Made with meringue, nougat, almond, biscuits and raspberries, this dessert is truly irresistible. Don’t have a pudding basin? Freeze the mixture in a lined loaf pan, then scoop or cut into slices to serve.
